After losing to the United States 2-0 on Tuesday, Mexico, long a regional and world soccer power, is in danger of missing the World Cup in Brazil in 2014.
After an embarrassing loss to Honduras last week that got their coach fired, Mexico is currently in fourth place in the Concacaf region with eight points and two games to play. The top three teams in the region qualify, and should Mexico finish fourth, which is a possibility now if they do not win against Panana and/or Costa Rica, “El Tri” would have to play a home-and-home with New Zealand to qualify for the World Cup, which is far from a guarantee.
The United States qualified for the World Cup with their win over Mexico and a tie between Honduras and Panama.
